I just upgraded to Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex, because I like to play around in Alphas and Betas.

Anyway, the upgrade went fine, except for 2 things.

1: My screen resolution is stuck at 800x600. I can't figure out how to fix it.

2: This may help 1. I have been trying to install my ATI drivers, but have some problems. When I try installing with Hardware Drivers, it doesn't download anything, and when I try with EnvyNG, it crashes before it starts (EnvyNG I mean, not Ubuntu).

Any help?

Have a look at the debugging x section of the ubuntu wiki

In Envyng did you start it with the gtk installer if so, open terminal and start envy by typing:

sudo envyng -t

In most cases running "xfix" should fix the problem. Read more here: http://www.kshoster.net/?c=tipsandtricks&h=xfix

Install the package build-essential and try again:

sudo apt-get install build-essential

Did you update your xserver when you upgraded from hardy to intrepid? If so, I don't think fglrx supports the current xserver yet. Try the opensource drivers. You might run into problems with LibGl.so.* files, for those look in one of the other ati driver threads here. I don't remember which one.
